Take an up-close-and-personal look at Granville Street, one of Vancouver’s most popular, notorious, and historically rich streets with this video from the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association.

From the origin of the name and the fire that took it all away, to the iconic architecture and the diversity that makes it what it is today, this surprisingly entertaining video takes you from the mid-1800s to today, with a bit of tongue-in-cheek humour along the way.
